Default Looking at 2013 or similar Impreza

Hi,
I would post this in the warranty forum but I have no access until I post 3 times.
I am looking at 2012 to 2016 Imprezas and there is a 2013 I am interested in buying with 68k miles.
I understand the CVT warranty for 12-15 Imprezas has been extended to 10 years/100k miles.
Will this warranty carry over to new owners when the car is sold.

I am a little nervous about the CVT's reliability.

Thanks

Hey there If I were you I would buy a stick, proven reliability as long as you donít try to launch the car or do burnouts. I donít know much about the cvts, but I see a lot of automatic Imprezas on the road.

My experience is that these CVT's are very reliable (and one of the best CVT's in the industry, IMO). The warranty extension just gives that much more peace-of-mind.

Subaru doesn't rebuild CVTs when they fail. They are replaced as a unit. I asked when our Crosstrek CVT failed at 53,000 miles what it would have cost if it were out of my pocket. It's $8,000.

The extended warranty is good. But our Crosstrek is now at 85k miles. When it hits 99k, it'll be in the for sale section. If you're looking at a car with 68k miles, consider if you're ok with getting rid of it before you put more than 32k miles on it.

We have never mis-matched tires. I know better.

Subaru may not repair CVTs when they fail under warranty, but there's certainly plenty of info in the service manual on how to do that. So it's not like they can't be repaired, Subaru just prefer not to.
